Product Information

The QSFP+ Cable Module is an automated solution for hot-swap testing and fault injection on QSFP cables. Automation provides easier, faster and more detailed testing. Consistent, repeatable results reduce time to market and improve reliability.

Our QSFP module fits into the cable receptacle, allowing the module to break all signals in the connector, including power and data for active cables. Two versions are available, for single and Quad Ganged sockets.

The modules can be controlled manually, via scripts, or through your existing test automation system. This enables engineers to work more efficiently, giving higher confidence and lower outgoing failure rates.

This module requires purchase of a separate controller.


  • Automated hot-swap of QSFP cables
  • Inject glitches to create various faults
  • Simulate intermittent faults
  • Improve test coverage while decreasing duration
  • Ideal for bench testing, debugging, and evaluation
  • Provides power control and EEPROM override for active cables.

Technical Specification

  • 1ms timing resolution on all switches
  • 10us pin-bounce resolution on all switches
  • 50ns PRBS or user sequenced glitch pulses on all lines
  • Requires Torridon Array Controller or Interface Kit
  • Individual control over power, management, and data signals
  • Override individual cable EEPROM registers with user values.

Product Variants


This is the single module. Single modules are slightly wider than most normal QSFP cables so cannot be fitted side by side.


This is the Quad module. This fits into a Quad Ganged QSFP socket and allows control over all of the cables.
